Thanks, EShaver! I received your questionnaire and gave you a call, but no answer. I don't leave voicemail messages in case someone other than you would have access to them, so I sent you an email to the address you provided. I can call again if you prefer!
My name is Brooke Friley, and I am seeking participants for my doctoral dissertation research. My project is exploring how transgender individuals decide to disclose their transgender identity to medical providers. For this project I am conducting one-hour telephone interviews during which we will discuss how this information is shared. Results from these interviews will be analyzed by transgender individuals in focus groups with the hope of working collaboratively to develop resources that might help transgender individuals navigate these difficult conversations more comfortably.
All participant information will be kept confidential, and this study has been approved by the Purdue University Institutional Review Board (IRB). Participants who complete the interview will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $25 Amazon gift cards.
If you are interested in participating, please use the URL below to access a short screening questionnaire that will verify your eligibility and also ask for contact information and availability for scheduling an interview. To participate, you must be at least 18 years of age, able to interview in English, and identify as transgender.
If you would like further information about the study, please feel free to ask questions here or to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for considering participating in this research!
